Summary

"Before my version begins to fade,

Let me relieve what happened today.

Today was not a lifetime of discrimination and shame,

But of celebration as a black man living in Ukraine."

- culled from the EPIGRAPH


A brave and explorative Artisan

Calm exterior but he was born a warrior

A Leon not bothered about territory

A Leon who hunted alone.

And a Leon who hurt alone.


With a free prefrontal cortex, he came prepared for learning...

And learn he did, as his memory campus would get soiled with complex realities.

In my first anatomy tour, all I saw were dry cadavers,

But by the end of my tenure, I saw my own fresh blood.


No tribal marks but you can tell he started out with an Afro.

And in this foreign soil, explorations were his special dish.

To-and-fro he evolved... and no, he didn't hail from the safari.

From a genial ark but he always kept his wits about him.


And when he stepped out, he was like a fresh aphrodisiac.

Through his eyes, you could hear all of his favorite tunes.

Black vanilla at his core as he had a thing for interfacing.

General with a stylus brush,

Hankie forever in the back pocket.


Like his paws, his heart appears four-chambered,

But on closer inspection, you see a fifth chamber a short distance away from the rest.

Aย blind Cub walking in the midst of hyenas,

With lesions so deep, they suffocated him where it hurt most.



The pages are filled with art and expression,

As I relive this once-in-a-lifetime experience...

Which shaped me into the man I am today.
